Excellent experience. His aftercare was exceptional and when I developed some issues (not related to his surgery) he offered clear and concise advice. I certainly felt that I had 100% support behind me. Fully recommended. Also his office staff were exceptional - friendly and helpful

I had a procedure with Dr Kahane and everything was perfect! From beginning to end my experience was absolutely amazing. The doctors and staff (specially Gina and Jordyn at Front Desk) were very professional and took care of me like they know me for years! Won’t say I would love to come back (as I don’t want to have another surgery) but I wish them all the best!
